What is a Bridging Course? 

You may have heard of this term in the past. But what exactly does it mean? Bridging courses are designed to bridge the gap between high school and tertiary education. They are aimed at students who show potential, or at students who are eager to learn. These courses help students who don’t meet the requirements at first, an additional pathway to help them get there.

Who is the ICB Bridging Course for?

The ICB Bridging Course is aimed at students who want to study towards other ICB programmes, but don’t meet the minimum requirements. Instead of going back to school or getting your matric, you could enrol for a bridging course. The National Certificate: Bookkeeping serves as the alternative pathway to get the qualification you desire. 

What are the Requirements

The standard requirement for the ICB bridging course is grade 10. Students who wish to enrol should have this as well as a basic understanding of the English language. Your course and material will be in English, that’s why you need to be able to understand the language. Being able to do so will help you pass your course and comprehend the discussions within your study guide.
